Week beginning 29th June

Please choose one task from each subject per day. We would love to see what tasks your child has chosen to do at home, so please send these to your child's class teacher via Class Dojo. 

There are also some fantastic daily lessons and activities on BBC Bitesize for all ages and subjects. 

Maths Activities

This week, the Year 2 children will be learning to recall and use multiplication facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers. They will be learning to understand that the multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and will be using the multiplication symbol (×) and equals (=) signs. In addition to this, the children will be solving word problems using arrays, repeated addition and mental methods.

There is some additional information and support for parents on Oxford Owl.

All week: Mental Arithmetic Activities- Fluent in Five, Mental Arithmetic Quiz and Hit the Button

Lesson 1: Complete the introductory multiplication tasks for the 2x, 5x and 10x tables.

Lesson 2: Watch this BBC Bitesize video first and then complete the activities about arrays. Please start with the PDF file activity first. 

Lesson 3: Continue to practise your recall of the 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x tables on Times Tables Rock Stars.

Lesson 4: How many multiplication facts can you calculate in 2 minutes? Complete the multiplication grid to find out. Repeat the activity and see if you can challenge yourself to solve even more calculations. What is your top score? Let your teacher know on Class Dojo!
